Looking for ideas to get your birding dad for Father's Day? Emily from our crew opted for a Zeiss Terra ED 8x42. Watch below to see how well it went over!

An excellent choice for casual, lakeside bird watching, the Zeiss Terra ED 8x42 features all the specs a birder could want. This includes comfortable ergonomics, a manageable weight of only 24.5 ounces, a minimum focusing distance of 5.25 feet, and a wide field of view that covers 375 feet at 1000 yards. And if you're shopping for Father's Day and worried about this model being a good choice for glasses wearers, rest assured that the 18mm eye relief easily accommodates spectacles and sunglasses.
